B. System Introduction
VT300 is a high-tech product through cooperation with mobile
operators. It combines GPS Global Positioning System and
GSM/GPRS communication system, which can clearly inform you the
position & situation of your car.

GPS is the abbreviation for Global Positioning System, which based


on 24 position location satellites around the earth orbit. Their locating
precision can be kept within 10 to 15 meters.

GSM is the second digital mobile communication system (GPRS,


second and fifth digital mobile communication system), and at
present it is the mobile communication system that has the largest
coverage and owns the most number of users. This product
combines GPS and GSM/GPRS technologies together. It uses
GPS system to locate your car, and sends the position/ situation
report back to you via GSM/GPRS communication system.
With a delicate mobile phone, you can monitor the present situation in
your car from a faraway place. You can use the telephone remote
control function to set monitoring mode, which will report the situation
of your car to you periodically.

2. Precaution before Installation

Check if all the parts are included.

Prepare a SIM card for GSM communication. Use some other


mobile phone to confirm that the PIN code has not been set, and that
it can dial out and receive telephone calls without problem.

Before installing the SIM card, make sure to cut off power from the
AVL unit. The correct installation method is to push the tray
completely into the AVL unit, until you feel it is hooked by something.

Find a suitable place inside the car for installing the unit.

Check if all the wiring has been connected correctly; then connect
the AVL unit to the power source.

4.INSTALLATION

4.1 Step 1: Install SIM Card

(1) Unscrew and remove the front cover of your locator.

(2) Insert the SIM card by sliding it into the card holder slot, with the
chip module facing to the connectors on PCB, as direction shown in
the picture.

(3) Put back the front cover and screw it up.

※ Make sure to turn off the power before installing the SIM card.
※ Make sure to deactivate the PIN code, so that the SIM card can
operate without PIN protection.
※ Before install the SIM card to the GPS Tracker, please use a mobile
phone to make sure the SIM card can make & receive phone calls
without problem.
※ Before install the SIM card to the GPS Tracker, please use a mobile phone
to empty the SMS storage of the SIM card.
Redview GPS www.redview.net - 15 -Page 15 of 46

4.2 Step 2: Install GSM Antenna

z Connect the GSM Antenna to the unit.

z Fasten the connection by turning the screw in the bottom.


Please do not swing round the antenna itself.
Redview GPS www.redview.net - 16 -Page 16 of 46

4.3 Step 3: Connect GPS Antenna

※ GPS antenna is used to receive satellite signals in the sky. It should be


positioned where it will have an unobstructed view of the sky. The ideal location
is on top of the dashboard or close to the rear window of the car.

※ GPS antenna can pick up signals through glass and plastic, but will not “see
the sky” through metal or other conductive surfaces. To avoid distractions of GPS
signal, make sure the antenna is not covered or shielded by any object
containing metal, such as the metallic windshield.

※ If your car is with metallic windshield, please cut a hole on the windshield
above the place where you put the GPS antenna, so that the antenna can
receive the GPS signals.

D. Operating Instructions

1. Position Report Function

No matter where you are, when you want to know the position of
your vehicle, send a SMS message or make a telephone call
to the VT300; it will report its location back to you by SMS .

Edit a message as following format, then send it to VT300:

Format: W+Password+, +000


( init password is : 000000)

For example: W000000,000


Redview GPS www.redview.net - 22 -Page 22 of 46

The VT300 will send back one SMS ,which includes the position
information

Position Data means :

Longitude = 114 degree - 04 cent - 57.74 second


Latitude = 22 degree - 32 cent - 40.05 second

Tips:

Apply for one position service by another easier way:

(a) Make a cell phone call to VT300


(b) After listening the ring of VT300, wait for about 10s ,then you can
hold off the dialup --
(c) Then, after 10 second, the cell phone will receive
the Position SMS.
Redview GPS www.redview.net - 23 -Page 23 of 46

2. Tracking Function

Tracking report function can be turned on or off according to the


requirements of the user. Tracking function will continually report
vehicle position until it gets stop command .In this tracking module ,
VT300 will send one position message at a preset time interval.

Step1.Edit a message as following format, then send it to VT300:

----- W+Password+,+002,+XXX
(Note : XXX Unit: preset minute interval
-- if XXX=000 it is STOP tracking )

For example : W000000,002,005


(its means is VT300 will send Position Data every 5 minute.)
Redview GPS www.redview.net - 24 -Page 24 of 46

Step2. VT300 will send back one SMS-----Set Time (preset time
interval) OK.

In this example, the SMS is Set Time (005 Min) OK

This SMS means that VT300 is in tracking mode now and


preset time interval is 5 minutes.

Step3. VT300 will send back position SMS at preset time interval.

In this example, the SMS will send back at preset time


interval :5 minutes
Redview GPS www.redview.net - 25 -Page 25 of 46

3.Stop tracking function.

This function is used to turn off tracking report function.

Edit a message as following format, then send it to VT300:


Format: W+password+,+002+,+000
For example : W000000,002,000

The VT300 will reply by one SMS-----Stop Timer OK. This


message means tracking report function is turned off.

H GPRS communication setting


Step1: Make sure that your SIM card in VT300 support the GPRS function and have
enough deposit.

Step2: Set tracker ID of GT30 by send one SMS:

SMS Format: W******,010, Tracker ID

For example :
W000000,010,123456

“123456” can be considered to be the device’s name. (Tracker ID must be < 14 digits)
If there are several devices ,you can use their Tracker ID to differ from each other.

VT300 will respond one SMS to confirm the setting.


as “Set SIM OK/123456”

Step3 : Set IP address and Port by send one SMS

SMS Format: W******,012,IP,PORT

IP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
PORT: [1,65536]

Make sure that the IP should be the Extranet IP. If your pc is in Intranet ,you must know your
Extranet IP . You may need the help of you network administrator

For example :
W000000,012,202.116.11.12,8000

VT300 will respond one SMS to check it.


as “Set IP ok /202.116.11.12#8000”

Step4: Set APN

SMS format : W*****,011, APNString

For example :
Redview GPS www.redview.net - 33 -Page 33 of 46

W000000,011, CMNET

GT30 will respond one SMS to check it


as “set APN OK /CMNET”

Step5:Set time interval of sending GPRS package

SMS format: W******,014 , XXXXX

( XXXXX:Be sure that the time interval MUST be FIVE digits).


XXXXX: means times interval,
(Unit: 10s)
The length of XXXXX is in 5 digits
XXXXX=00001, means time interval is 10s
XXXXX=00000 (default), means GPRS is disable

For example:
W000000,014,00003

SMS meaning: Make GT30 send a GPRS package every 30 seconds

VT300 will respond one SMS to confirm the setting .


as “set GPRS Timer ok/00003”

Step6: Enable GPRS function

SMS format: W******,013,X

X=0 close GPRS


X=1 open GPRS

For example: W00000, 013, 1

SMS meaning: Make GT30 begin GPRS function.

GT30 will respond one SMS to confirm the setting .


as “open tcp ok”

( Note: 1 GT30 default value is GPRS Disable


2 SMS W0000,013,0 is disable GPRS function )

Step7 : According to the document of our GTP communication protocols for VT300 , the
server can analyses the GPRS data.
Redview GPS www.redview.net - 34 -Page 34 of 46

(Tips:

1 You can get the latitude & longitude data sent from GT30 by GPRS every interval
time from the Any software of TCP receiver ,which is installed in your PC.

2 if you require the document about GTP communication protocol of GT30, please
contact us by mail. Our mail address: annagps@gmail.com )

3 for bulk number:

You can configure VT300 by PC tools named “Parameter Editor” in CD


----the tools is be designed by RedView GPS, and it is for configuring bulk number of
Tracker unit, And the customers require one special USB configure cable from RedView
GPS which connect PC with Tracker unit.
